TESLA'S bizarre new Cybertruck is coming this month – with its first customers to receive their futuristic-looking EV on November 30.
But the latest creation from Elon Musk's car giant comes with a head-scratching 'purchase agreement' that could cost owners thousands in fines.
According to an update in Tesla’s Motor Vehicle Purchase Agreement, early buyers of the Cybertruck will be prevented from reselling their monster EV until a year after they take delivery.
The clause was added to Tesla's Purchase Agreement under the “No Resellers” section, which is normally there to prevent dealerships from buying Teslas en-masse to resell them.
But underneath this section is a “For Cybertruck Only” heading, which stipulates that that buyers can’t sell the vehicle within the first year of ownership without explicit permission from Tesla.
Those who fail to abide by this new clause can be barred from purchasing Tesla vehicles – or even fined.

According to the small print, "liquidated damages" could see owners forced to cough up to $50,000, roughly £40,000, or "the value received as consideration for the sale or transfer, whichever is greater.”
Tesla says it currently has over a million Cybertruck reservations, although the EV truck isn’t expected to go into mass production until next year.
Sadly, Tesla removed the option to pre-order the Cybertruck in the UK and Europe last year, and it remains unclear whether or not the Cybertruck will be available to buy in the UK or Europe.
The launch of the new Cybertruck is perhaps the most highly anticipated in Tesla's history – with the space-age motor's debut delayed several times.
